Thanksgiving Point Education Day – Free for teachers with School ID

August 9, 2017 @ 3:00 pm - 7:00 pm


Education Day

Wednesday, August 9, 2017

Educators, we value your efforts to give your students opportunities to explore science outside the classroom. During Education Day, you can experience for yourself what Thanksgiving Point has to offer your students at the Museum of Natural Curiosity, Museum of Ancient Life, Farm Country and Ashton Gardens.

Admission is free on this date for all educators with current school identification and you may arrive any time between 3:00-7:00 pm. Bring your fellow educators to visit our wonderfully diverse venues to see how our exhibits and immersive environments correlate to the state standards for your grade and how our programs can support and enhance your good work in the classroom.

Learn about self-guided and facilitated K-12 field trips, scholarships to help with the cost of visiting Thanksgiving Point, free statewide outreach programs for 3rd and 8th grades, USU Science Kits for checkout, and the ECO Challenge high school environmental science program. Check our state standard-related activities that are a part of Explorer PLUS facilitated field trips offered at each venue and explore our spaces to get inspiration for bringing science to life for your students.
